HENDERSONVILLE, NC (WSPA) – A man facing charges in the death of a high school senior in a car crash is scheduled to be in court.
Last month a grand jury indicted Matthew Schmieder on second-degree murder charge for the death of 17-year-old Derek Miller on December 23, 2016.
NC Highway Patrol say Schmieder was trying to pass several cars when he hit Miller’s pickup truck, killing the teen in a head-on collision.
Miller was a senior at East Henderson High School.
Schmier is jailed on a $200,000 bond.
